thing that diane keaton, and lenny kravitz, and the winner of the author book award have in common. and penny marshal, john mcenroe, and michael moore also have it in common. and what does mike nichols have in common? and oscar winning director, mike nichols have in common with brittany spears? remember, it has absolutely nothing to do with show business. it is what meryl streep has in common with the temptations. the most successful producer of our time has in common with oprah winfrey. it is what jennifer aniston has in common, with ed koch, the former mayor who died last week. what paul rudd has in common with c. everett coop, the surgeon general. obviously, i could go on and on, i will give you the final clue of what unlocks this mystery, of what all of these people have in common, every name i have mentioned so far has this same thing in common. and here is that final clue that should allow you to figure it all out. what does sarah silverman have in common with marion wright edelman, the president and founder of the children's defense fund? come on, it is not obvious yet. okay

could be if senator harry reid's argument -- that is essentially dead on arrival anyway. >> if diane feinstein doesn't have the assault weapons at least let her have an opportunity to offer this amendment. >> will you vote for it? >> i don't know, frankly -- and she knows i didn't read her amendment. i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense, but i'll take a look at it. >> joining me now to take a look at it. editor for the new republic, good to see you, my friend. >> thanks for having me on the show, ezra. >> so that didn't sound enormously encouraging from harry reid, kind of sounded like the assault weapons ban will get a bit of a pro forma vote and that is about it. >> i think everybody knew going into the fight the different elements of the gun legislation agenda, that the assault weapons ban would be one that had the hardest road ahead. in part because you know you still need 60 votes to pass anything in the senate. and in part because the republicans control the house. and in part because the gun lobby has made this a very hard vote to have.
